Times they are a changin'!

You may have noticed a pattern with me and my beloved bloggity. I'll be all about it for a good while then pretty much abandon it for awhile then get back into being all about it again. Rinse and repeat if I so wish.

Random Person: Hey Jackie, why haven't you posted on your blog lately?

Me: What? I stepped in some blog?? Oh yeah... my blog!!

I actually have a good reason for the recent abandonment. We are moving south! Not very far and not anywhere very exciting but we are indeed headed south. About 15 minutes south of the current town we reside in. Being the wonderfully, devoted procrastinator that I am, I have been putting everything off until the last moment. That's the only time I actually get stuff done- the last minute.

So there's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Here's a random ass (literally) picture for yall:

Conversation Hearts (yummy!)

It's that day again! Valentines Day. Some people hate it and some people just love it so much. I'm sort of in between those people. If you really think about it, it truly is a Hallmark Holiday. BUT, it is nice to have a special day to pay special attention to your loved ones.

This Valentine's Day will be very simple in our household. We have basically forgotten about it with everything that is going on. The Hubster and I now write each other letters instead of buying cards (to help make it more personal) so we'll probably exchange those and there might be a kiss in there somewhere.

My daughter is running around hyper off her new found crack: Conversation Hearts.

So, out of love for those wonderful little candies I thought I'd share a funny conversation I had with her the other day about my new found love. I have become obsessed with the new Camaro. That damn car is so hot that I just about cream my pants every time I come across one! I get my love for cars from the Pops.. cars are definitely his reason for living (besides his family of course).

So the other day I had us loaded up in the Tahoe and we driving down the street. I was on the hunt for some rental properties. All of sudden, in the distance, I saw the grill of a new Camaro coming my way. It was the 3rd one I'd seen in the past couple of days. After letting out a lusting groan as it passed me, I had decided the Car Gods were teasing me! Here is where the conversation started:

Camaro: Vrooooooommmmmmmmmmm (driving past us)

Me: Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I want, I want!

**Silence** (as I watched it disappear in my mirror)

Me: They're teasing me Emma Anne(my almost 2 yr old daughter)! I must have one! They know I want one, that car was made for me, and you too! Do you know how cool it would be if I dropped you off at school in one of those cars? They'd all be like, "here comes Emma Anne and her badass mom!"

Emma Anne: Mommy!
(as if she's saying, "get serious woman!")

Me: Don't you want your mommy to pick you up in a badass car?

Emma Anne: No.
(shaking her head.)

Me: Are you serious? Don't you think it would be so very awesome if we had one of those?

Emma Anne (exaggerated): Ohhh, Mommy!
(as if saying, "you're a lost cause woman.. get a grip!")

I couldn't help but laugh as I wondered, this is my child isn't it? Did she not get the attention loving trait that has been passed down through so many generations?

Confessions of a Thirty-Somethin' year old....

1. I'm secretly becoming an addict of Coke. Screw the diet crap, I mean the straight up Coca Cola!

2. I'm becoming so addicted to organizing that I think I'm a little over the edge... I'm starting to organize messed up shelves at the grocery store!! I. Can't. Stop.

3. I still try to find a way to lead every conversation to Twilight.

Ok.. that feels so much better!

Out of the office....

"Hi this is Jackie, I will be out of the blogging office Thursday February 5th & Friday, February 6th. Possibly Saturday, Februray 7th. I have stuck my head back up my ass and decided to have a Moving Sale. Yes, after saying I would NEVER do another Garage Sale again, I have made myself a damn lier. Luckily though, I have a friend, Smuggle, who doesn't seem to mind the torture of these kind of things and will help me through it. Wish us luck!

"If this is an emergency by all means call 9-1-1, dorks!"
